Melbourne’s Third Burger Invitational Is Back This Weekend

It’s the question that keeps us up at night: who makes the best burger in Melbourne? We’ve actually recruited a professional burger eater to try and find out—but every year Melbourne’s burger scene evolves. New burgers emerge, old burger favourites bite the dust. It’s a never-ending quest.

But this weekend, Welcome To Thornbury are going to settle the issue once and for all. The annual Burger Invitational is back. And you’re all invited.

This is your chances to try burgers from Melbourne’s most famous burger bars. Guests can taste a little of everything, vote on their favourite stacks, and go in the draw to win a cool $300 Welcome To Thornbury voucher. (Think how many food truck burritos that could buy...)

The Burger Invitational battle will run over two days, and so far the line-up is looking pretty nuts. On Saturday you’ll taste the best from Betty’s Burgers, LA Burger, St. Burgs (we hope they bring their Doughnut Burger), Skipping Girl Takeaway and Benny Burger. On Sunday, you’ll get Leonard’s House of Love (represent), Burgertory, Gorilla Grill, Between 2 Buns and Betty’s Burgers.

Bonus: the guys from Bluebonnet BBQ will be slinging their famous ice-cream sandwiches across the two days. There will also be the usual range of craft beers and cocktails available from the bar.

So who will it be, Melbourne? Who’s cuisine reigns supreme? Only you can decide.
